    • Seems with this more and more compatible Firefox 3 Extensions we get also more and more Leak Reports. A little sad are comments like this from irc" a friend of a friend is saying that Firefox 2 uses less memory/cpu than Firefox 3 for him with a few extensions loaded".In this case 4 Extensions were installed and 2 of them are already on my Leak Buglist :-/ seems there is still a lot of work left here...
